Almay Makeup Remover
Almay has a few different versions of makeup remover, and I chose this one because it's oil free. Anybody ever try the ones that aren't? Better remove your makeup before taking a shower or washing your face, because that's about the only way you're gonna get that awful residue off. Well you don't have that problem with this one. Sure you can't wipe your eye down and expect to put fresh makeup on it again right away, but if you wipe it dry with a Kleenex and wait a few minutes, you can, which is really nice if you messed something up and need to be able to redo it.
The pads themselves are pretty decently sized, easily enough to take care of one eye, or even both if your makeup is fairly light. As you can see to the left, they're pretty thin too. What's nice about that is that you can use up one side, fold it in half, then keep using it.
Curious to see what happened? Well over there on the left is an after picture. You can see that it took care of the regular eyeshadows with no problem whatsoever. The eyeliner didn't take much work to get off. But that cream based eyeshadow took work. I had to scrub to get it off. But wouldn't you know, I managed to get most of it!
And I even managed to get the rest of it off all by using just one pad. So unless your entire makeup collection consists of the heaviest duty makeup you can find, you shouldn't have a problem using this either.
I looked around on the internet to see if I could see where all it was sold. I know I've purchased it from Walmart, but based on the pricing I saw on the internet for it from Walmart, that was a bad idea. You should also be able to find it at Target and a few other brick and mortar stores. If not, you can definitely get it from Amazon for just over $5.
